PWG Junior Varsity Guard

UPDATED 11/12/2023

Due to strong interest in our Varsity Winter Guard program, we’ll be making a change to our JV program for the 2023-2024 season. This information is new and vastly different than what was presented at the November 1st, 2023 informational meeting. The new JV program will have practices on Sunday afternoons from 3:00-6:00 PM in addition to Monday and Wednesday evenings from 6:00-9:00 PM. All rehearsals will be at Plainfield Central HS unless otherwise notified. Our first rehearsal with the JV program will be Sunday, 11/12/2023 from 3:00-6:00 PM.

How is this new JV program different than the old JV program?
